The Dream and the Hard Work

The Dream and the Hard Work

Revising. Making my plot race, my words sing.

No matter how hard this is, there isn’t anything I’d rather be in life. A writer, I mean. I’ve become very one-note when it comes to my aspirations. It’s all I want. It’s all I want to do.

I want things for other people, too. I want their dreams to come true. Those close to me, they know who they are. Especially the one I love: He helped me get to this moment. I want to help him get to his.

This dream is hard work. But I love a deadline. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The images featured with this post are of a piano left out in the street. Have you walked by it this weekend, too? It’s battered and broken, but I connect to it. Someone played it. Someone played it to death and beyond.

  1. I always get a fleeting pang of grief when I see something like an old piano or furniture abandoned on the street.
